hard-fought game on Friday last.
The opponents outweighed our
team but the speed "of-the backfield
and the spectacular defensive work
of the line overbalanced their ad
vantage. The first quarter was scoreless
with the ball in Genoa's territory
most of the time. In the later
part of the second period Thornton
managed to carry the pigskin over
for our first touch down. The goal
was not kicked, making the score
G to 0.

the scoring. It remained 9 to 0 till

A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIREC
TION In order to convince tho people
in rerrysburg and the territory
surrounding it for miles that they
can do better by trading in this
town a number of our -progressive
merchants have inaugurated a sys
tem of special prices on articles for
Saturday only. On every one of
the articles advertised there is a
genuine saving and they will go a
long way towards helping to solve
thc"-problem of the high cost'of liv
ing. These specials will bo in the
regular advertisements of the mer
chants and it will pay every woman
(and man to watch for them each
week and read them carefullyv Tho
progressive spirn. snown oy our
merchants in the endeavor to ex
tend the trade territory of Perrys
burg is certainly to be commended,
and there can be no doubt but that
tho new move will be profitable to
the advertisers and a lasting bene
fit to tho town.

NEW CITY BUILDING
An Absolute Necessity and Its Ex

The voters will decide at the
polls cfn Tuesday, November 4,
whether Perrysburg shall have a
new, city building or nothing at all.
The present building occupied
by the fire department and council
chamber has been condemned and
ordered closed by the State Indus
trial uomnu&sion, witli the per
mission to be used only until elec
tion. The tower is dangerously
unsafe and the front wall of the
entire building is about to cave in.
It was erected forty-seven yenrs
ago and has served its purpose,
now it lias become dangerous and
unfit for use and must, be torn
On the same location, if the peo
ple of our town are in favor, can
be built a fine city building, for
which bonds must be issued to the
amount of $7,000. Are the major
ity in favor of voting this bond
issue? Consider the matter, look
at the "fine new buildings being
erected by some of our progressive
business men, the large extensions
added to their present buildings
by Mr. Geo. W. Moser and "Win.

Milton Meadcnus has erected and

provements, and the town not own-

short time, pay for a new build

conveniences wall be lacking. A
town as progressive as Perrysburg

the question rests with the voters
to be settled.

Front Street Shell Holes Cause
Big Loss to Town
The shell holes in the Front
street paving will cause thousands
of dollars loss to the business
interests of Perrysburg during the
coining year. This became ap
parent during the past week when
the Toledo Automobile club
caused signs to be placed east and
west of the town, asking all tour
ists oil the Dixie Highway to de
tour around the town, on account
of the condition of Front street.
What this means to the financial
interests of Perrysburg can easily

In the meantime, along with the

dences, our stately church and
beautiful school building. All
this is lost and more too.
Mayor Canfield's article in last

shows that the city officials are
anxious to do their utmost in sur
mounting the obstacles in the path

There must be some method by
which this improvement can be
made and the columns of the
